Small generators like this almost always have 2 stator windings 180 degrees out pf phase, that's how it makes the 220.
At the back (maybe side) of the outlet box should be a molex type plug that has the wires from the stator, get an ohm meter and measure them (with the generator shut off of course). You should find that you've got 4 wires in the plug, 1 wire for each end of 2 coils. From one end to the other of each coil you should measure less than an ohm, between the coils there is usually no connection, but some models have the neutral ends of each coil connected together inside the generator housing.
It sounds to me like you've got one of the power windings open...

If you have checked the stator, rotor and brushes and they appear alright then it is probably a voltage regulator. The honda dealer can run a test and confirm the problem at very little expense. It cost me 25 dollars Canadian to preform the test and it was well worth the money because you cannot return electrical parts and they can be very expensive. Have a great day!

check to make sure your spark plug is clean and that your rpm is set right. if the rpm on the engine is not right it will not put out the right current and you will burn something up. take a lamp with 100 watt or higher bulb or an old power too and plug it in and turn it on and see if the motor speeds up. if it dosent then you have a rpm problem that could be as simple as the sparkplug or gas to the governor not letting the engine speed up. both are simple fixes. if the engine does speed up then you have either an armature problem or or a regulator problem. if it has never been used then it may be under warranty and should not cost nothing to repair it.
